About the book
CITY OF GOD begins in mystery: the large brass cross behind the altar of St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in lower Manhattan has disappeared ... and even more mysteriously reappeared on the roof of the Synagogue for Evolutionary Judaism on the Upper West Side. The church's maverick rector and young rabbinical couple who lead the synagogue set about attempting to learn who the vandals are who have committed this strange double act of desecration and to what purpose, but their joint clerical investigation only deepens the mystery. A writer alerted to the story by a newspaper article befriends the priest and the rabbis and find that their struggles with their respective traditions are relevant to the case. In fact, as the narrative advances and the story broadens, more and more people are implicated in what may be the elusive prophecy of a new American culture. Daringly poised at the junction of the sacred and the profane, the book opens into a multi-voiced narrative that incorporates the monumental historical events and predominating ideas of our age.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
'It is this sort of alcehmenical writing- a marriage of ideas in words that carry on a debate between what it and what might be- that makes the heart soar throughout this exhilarating book.' DAILY TELEGRAPH
'This is an engrossing work of unstinting intellectualism, both provocative and entertaining.' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY
'The core of the tale is a supernatural mystery... But Doctorow expands his story into that of a deeper mystery, weaving in a poetic, philosophical, fantastical smorgasbord of characters, events and ideas from the 20th century to address just what life is all about. Epic.' SCOTSMAN
'Doctorow's acute observations of life and his linguistic dexterity make this a compelling examination of human nature.' SUNDAY TIMES
'CITY OF GOD is a very good novel about contemporary America and its troubled search for reconciliation between science and faith.' GUARDIAN
'Doctorow's meditation on God is thought-provoking, perfectly accessible, intelligently told through satisfying characters and generally beautifully written.' THE TIMES
'Doctorow is a master of atmosphere ... He knows the art of storytelling inside and out' NEWSWEEK
'E L Doctorow is an astonishing novelist - astonishing not only in the virtuosity with which he deploys his mimetic skills, but also in the fact that it is impossible to predict even roughly the shape, scope and tone of one of his novels from its predecessors' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
